Member Exhibition: Battle of the Sexes Upcoming at Delaware Art Museum
Follow this link to read about our upcoming Women's Caucus for Art Philadelphia Chapter exhibit, Battle of the Sexes on the Delaware Art Museum website:
Battle of the Sexes
March 5, 2011 – May 22, 2011
Organized as a participatory experience by The Philadelphia Women’s Caucus for Art, Battle of the Sexes presents works by women artists, each of whom has invited a male artist to exhibit with her. Artists’ names will not appear on labels identifying the works. Visitors will receive ballots, on which they may vote on whether each work was created by a female or male artist. During the penultimate week of the exhibition, the results will be tallied and posted, along with the names and genders of the artists. Results will also be published on the Philadelphia-WCA blog, and emailed to voters who request the results on their ballots. In accord with The Women’s Caucus for Art’s mission to create community through art, education, and social activism, Battle of the Sexes will have you looking, thinking, talking, voting, and coming back to see the mysteries revealed.
We had a mention from Ed Sozanski (Inquirer & their online version):
"Battle of the Sexes. The Philadelphia Chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art wants to know if you can distinguish between art made by men and art made by women. At this Delaware Art Museum exhibition, visitors can vote on works presented without names. The "participatory experience" runs March 5 through May 22. (302-571-9590 or www.delart.org)"
